Authentic Chicken Adobo
Great recipe! Yes, the annatto and garlic are listed twice, because they are used twice...SMH. McCormick now has ground annatto (Achiote Molido), so it's a little easier to find in larger grocery stores. The second time I made it I used reduced sodium soy sauce, and it definitely cut down on the saltiness from when I originally tried the recipe but kept the same great flavor. This one's a keeper!

The Best Thai Coconut Soup
This is a great recipe with true authentic flavor. I'm not sure why some other reviewers are complaining about hard or crunchy pieces of ginger and lemongrass--the recipe clearly states to grate the fresh ginger and mince the lemongrass. If that is done properly, there are no hard, crunchy pieces. The soup is rich and filling. Next time I might try using the lite coconut milk to see what difference it makes in the overall presentation.

Low Sugar / No Sugar Strawberry Jam
I tried this recipe for the first time today and it turned out perfectly! The level of sweetness was just right, and since low-sugar pectin is used the huge amount of sugar one normally uses in making jam isn't needed for preservation. (I used water instead of fruit juice and the 1/2 cup sugar). As one other reviewer mentioned, the consistency inside the processed jars seemed to be more like thin syrup at first, but about three to four hours after pulling them out of the water bath they had thickened up to a perfect consistency. I highly recommend this recipe!
